My local fox network is playing "The King's Speech" (the movie!)

And NOT airing any of the RNC.


(If you havent seen the movie, it's superb and the timing is great)


Edit to clarify: the movie is a about King George and how he copes with a substantial stutter. Sheer brilliance.

2. There is no way

Whoever scheduled the movie during the exact hour of the RNC and IMF45 is a genius!

Sounds like a tRumpian move.

9. What makes it perfect is that it's about King Charles VI

who overcomes a speech impediment to ascend to the throne, much like Joe Biden in 2020.

It's owned by Sinclair.

34. I think they chose to avoid airing COVID-45.

They see the polling. I think they believed it was more of a risk to air it than not.

Omission is a powerful form of censorship.

Strange a Fox station would play a movie about a leader who overcomes a stutter.
